This week’s guest is David Sparks from macsparky.com. David is the co-host of Mac Power Users with Katie Floyd and The Free Agents with Jason Snell. According to David, he’s also a bad musician (he traded his saxophones for children) and a non-full-time lawyer. But he’s also an author of the MacSparky Field Guides, which are published as iBooks. His latest book, the iPhone Field Guide was just released with over 50 screencasts, 450 pages, 44 chapters and over 65000 words.
I had him on the show to talk about how he creates his books, especially focusing on iBooks Author. Spoiler though, he explains how and why he’s switching to Pages for the creation of his next book. We had a blast talking all of this, including his concept of Cooking Ideas.
